about

This is an album that includes a wide variety of songs that I've written over the last couple of years. There are a few 'worship' songs, there's at least one 'wrestling with God' song, there are a few 'pilgrim' songs, and there's even an arrangement of an old hymn! I hope you enjoy - and if you do, please get the word out!

Track Name: Lost and Found
the first time that I saw you, i didn't know your name
i couldn't shake the feelings you brought with you when you came
but that was long ago; it's been so many years since i walked away

it wasn't so much ignorance, it was more naivete
and though you seemed a stranger, i could tell that you knew me
yeah that was long ago; it's been so many years since i felt that way

i've been lost and i've been found
i've soared the sky, i've clawed the ground
and I left you alone, yeah I know it was wrong
and nothing's been the same since i’ve been gone

you knew that i was guilty, the blood was on my hands
you knew of my deception, all the victims, all the scams
and yet you spoke to me,
i won’t forget that day, you said you’d wait for me

i've been lost and i've been found
i've soared the sky, i've clawed the ground
and I left you alone, yeah I know it was wrong
and nothing's been the same since i’ve been gone

sometimes i felt that you were round the corner
beyond my reach, just out of sight
i swear I heard you in the voice of strangers
a presence in the shadows

i think i saw you yesterday, it was in a crowded room
i recognized those feelings, yeah i know that it was you
and i turned away
it’s been so many years since i’ve cried this way

i've been lost and i've been found
i've soared the sky, i've clawed the ground

i've been lost and i've been found
i've soared the sky, i've clawed the ground
here i thought i was alone, oh thank god i was wrong
it turns out you’ve been with me all along
Track Name: As Your Kingdom Comes
you bless the poor in spirit, for heaven is their home
you bless the merciful, to them your mercy will be shown
those who work for peace, are children of the lord
you heal the broken heart and bless the ones who mourn

as your kingdom comes, may my will become yours
as your kingdom comes, may my will become yours

you bless the pure in heart, for they will see your face
your spirit will not bless a heart that’s filled with hate
so teach us to forgive, teach us not to judge
help us turn our cheek, and bless our enemies with love

as your kingdom comes, may our will become yours
as your kingdom comes, may our will become yours

we will mend the broken, we will heal the lame
god renew our nation in and through the power of jesus name
you oppose the proud, and you embrace the meek
you will raise your humble servants; it’s your kingdom we will seek

as your kingdom comes, may our will become yours
as your kingdom comes, may our will become yours
Track Name: Near
when the day’s not well, when my heart’s an empty shell
you are near
when I’ve lost my worth, like a shoot breaks from the earth
you are here

when last week’s weakness calls,
when across my heart a shadow crawls
you are near
when I’ve lost the fight when I’m blind, in need of sight
you are here

when I want what the devil sells,
one foot in heaven, one foot in hell
when I’m caught between the best and the worst in me
like the air, you are with me – i breathe you in you set me free
you set me free


when doubt shuts the sky, and all my questions come to ‘why’
you are near
like a highway out, like a secret that I shout
you are here

though I walk through a darkened valley
though I know not where to go
you have said you would walk beside me
guide my way on the path below
though i walk through a darkened valley
though i know not where to go
you have said you would walk beside me
keep this heart from sinking low
Track Name: Psalm 121
the maker is your shelter, the maker is your shade
the sun and moon won't harm you
you need not be afraid

i look up to the mountains, where does my help come from?
my help comes from the maker
from the holy one

god is faithful, love unchanging
ever watching o'er his children

the maker will not slumber, the maker will not sleep
the one who watches o'er you, his promise he will keep
Track Name: Patience Love
have patience love, don't let them get to you
have patience love, you know i'll walk you through
have patience love, things are gonna change
have patience love, nothing will be the same, no

have patience love, we've seen this place before
have patience love, look for the open door
have patience love, this isn't all there is
have patience love

have patience love, this isn't gonna last
have patience love, even time will pass
have patience love, i'll hold your arms up high
have patience love, keep looking to the sky

when the water, rising softly, threatens your security
when they're closing in from every side, i'll be with you

have patience love, our seasons come and go
have patience love, you've crawled against the flow
have patience love, i'm standing by your side
have patience love

when the water, rising softly, threatens your stability
when they're closing in from every side, i'll run to you
i will be your everything
i will be your everything
mountains crumble, strong will stumble
i will be with you
Track Name: 14/12
little boy, you should be in your father’s arms tonight
little boy, today the darkness stole your light and oh
little boy, this never should have happened to a boy
a little boy, I’m sure you’re glad it’s over
but our hearts are broken without you here

i heard your mama crying
i heard the wings of 20 angels flying
there ain’t nothing that I can say
ohh...

little girl, your presents wrapped, they’re waiting for you
little girl, this house so still, so sad without you
little girl, this never should have happened to a girl, a little girl
you need to know we’re sorry and our hearts are broken without you here

today a nations crying
i heard the wings of 20 angels flying
are there any words to say?
ohh...

oh my god, how can this be?
would you give new life, and then steal it back?
is this part of the plan, is this your sovereignty?
were they really called home? no it can’t be that simple
we’ve wrestled with you, now we crawl away crippled

and I heard our father crying
i heard the wings of 20 angels flying
ohh…

oh my god can it be, does it break your heart?
Track Name: I Will Trust You
if I go up to the heavens, if I go down to the grave,
even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me

i will trust you, lord, even when the storms are raging
i will love you, lord, even when this heart is breaking

if i ride the wings of morning
if i dwell by the farthest sea
even there your hand will guide me
and your strength sustain me

i will trust you, lord, even when the storms are raging
i will love you, lord, even when this heart is breaking
for i'm never alone; your faithfulness endures forevermore

when you stumble through the waters
when you're walking through the fire
the waves shall never overcome you
flames shall not consume you
Track Name: O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus
o the deep, deep love of jesus
vast, unmeasured, boundless free
rolling as a mighty ocean in its fullness over me
underneath me, all around me is the current of thy love!
leading onward, leading homeward
to my glorious rest above

o the deep, deep love of jesus
spread his praise from shore to shore
how he loveth, ever loveth; changeth never, nevermore
how he watches o'er his loved ones; died to call them all his own
how for them he intercedeth;
watcheth o'er them from the throne

o the deep deep love of jesus
love of ev'ry, love the best
'tis an ocean full of blessing
'tis a haven giving rest
o the deep, deep love of jesus
'tis a heav'n of heav'ns to me
and it lifts me up to glory, for it lifts me up to thee
